“We construct the experience of time in our minds, so it follows that we are able to change the elements we find troubling — whether it’s trying to stop the years racing past, or speeding up time when we’re stuck in a queue, trying to live more in the present, or working out how long ago we last saw our old friends. Time can be a friend, but it can also be an enemy. The trick is to harness it, whether at home, at work, or even in social policy, and to work in line with our conception of time. Time perception matters because it is the experience of time that roots us in our mental reality. Time is not only at the heart of the way we organize life, but the way we experience it…” from Claudia Hammond’s Time Warped, listed on The 13 Best Books of 2013 — The Definitive Annual Reading List

    I just read your idiotic comments about Paul McCartney’s music in the magazine, The Beatles: 50 Years of Beatlemania in America. That you demean some of McCartney’s best songs (Eleanor Rigby, Here There & Everywhere, For No One, Martha My Dear) makes me wonder how you even call your self a Beatles fan. But the larger question is why you even participated in a “review” of the best Beatles songs when both you and Patrick Foster were obviously both Lennon fanboys. Did it never occur to you that that would be unfair? Biased? One-sided? And fucking annoying? Of the best Beatles songs you two fools pick, all but one are Lennon songs. And you give anti-McCartney views away by describing Paul as a bassist, singer, and songwriter (in that order). what an incredibly STUPID view.. Gees, I thought we were past this critical tendency to canonize Lennon and demean McCartney. Well explain this: Most of Lennon’s best Beatles songs have crucial contributions from McCartney, while next to none of Paul’s best Beatles songs have major contributions from Lennon. So who is the band’s real musical genius? McCartney. I wish I’d read the magazine before I wasted my money on such one-sided crap. And why on earth didn’t that magazine find someone to comment who actually appreciates and understands McCartney. In short, sir: PISS OFF.
